This meetup was incredible! A few guests came from out of the country to attend: one from Maine and two from Rhode Island. We talked about what to do with Bitcoin Cash (ahem, “Bitcoin Trash”), what wallets people are using to claim it, what exchanges to use to turn it into something useful (ahem, Dash, Ethereum, Monero — some people even still like Bitcoin). Dinner was great — nice and slow with lots of time to talk and meet different people. The service was excellent, of course, as to be expected at a great restaurant like Martingale Wharf. The staff was extraordinarily accommodating for our large (and growing) group. We started outside on the deck with some drinks, and then had appetizers and dinner inside with the large windows open, facing the water. Totally great.
Conversation topics included the Free State Bitcoin Shoppe, organizing meetups in other locations, ways to help businesses like Martingale Wharf take cryptocurrency, beginner stuff like downloading a wallet, expert stuff like multisig addresses and xpub keys, and lots more.
Afterward, some of us went over to the Shoppe and showed off the latest art. Everyone had a great time, and conversations lasted way longer than we could stay and eat. Here are a few pictures from the event:
